Riders still have time to sign up and enter in advance of a popular charity bike ride.

However, the deadline to enter in advance of the Beccles Cycle for Life annual charity ride on May 12 – organised by the Rotary Club of Beccles – will only run to this Saturday, May 4.

As of last weekend there were already more than 100 entries, but those who miss the advance registration deadline can enter on the day at £20 per head or £40 for a family group of four people, or with another £5 for one extra child.

Now in its 18th year, the Beccles Cycle for Life charity ride raise funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance and the Rotary Club's charitable trust equally.

With the ride suitable for all ages and abilities – as there are five possible distances of eight, 16, 25, 41 and 50 miles – it attracts families and regular cyclists alike.
